Report: Bachelor Brad's Emily Is Next Bachelorette

Fool Emily Maynard once, shame on you. Fool her twice? Well, she may just come back with her own show.

The “winner” of Brad Womack’s season of The Bachelor is poised to be ABC’s next Bachelorette, sources at the show tell People.com. Womack and Maynard ended their engagement last summer — thus qualifying her for “bachelorette” status — and although she was reluctant to appear on the femme-fronted dating series because she didn’t want to be away from her daughter, the celeb site hears that ABC offered to move the production to her hometown of Charlotte, N.C.

But wait, there’s more. People.com also hears that Bentley Williams (who burned Bachelorette Ashley Hebert, saying he thought he “signed up to be with Emily”) is interested in competing for the Southern belle’s heart.

Asked to comment, an ABC spokesperson told TVLine that The Bachelorette is not yet confirming or announcing any casting for its next season.

What do you make of this Bachelorette buzz, fans? Is Emily kinda sorta too nice and gentle to drum up over-the-top drama?

  • Emily was very likable during Brad’s season, but her decision is a bit baffling. Didn’t she finally go on the record with news of the because she was tired of being hounded by photographers every time she and her daughter went out? I can’t imagine that will improve in this higher profile role. And she never struck me as a single mom who needed the money, unless her late fiance’s family cut her off after the whole debacle of her last appearance on the show.

  • For the love of entertainment reporting! People did NOT break this news. Reality Steve did some time ago!

  • I think it’s a terrible choice to have Emily as the next Bachlorette. She has shown herself to be extremely insecure and unable to commit. She needs therapy, nor another reality show!

  • I found her to be a bit dull, but I want to watch her season. I hope she escorts Bentley out of there before he gets a chance to speak.

  • So ABC is taking a girl who went on a reality show to find love and failed to put her on a reality show to find love? Um, okay. Dumb.

    Why do they keep picking people who can’t find a connection from these shows to inevitable flounder again. As if the ratings for the current Bachelor aren’t enough of a sign they need to look elsewhere?

  • I think she might be a good pick for Bachelorette.

  • I echo the comments of the first poster, this was on the net over a week ago thanks to realitysteve. The entire season, episode by episode, including the winner is also there. This show is a joke.

  • The fact that they had to move production to suit her should make them realize Em is a bad choice. They’d better find 25 guys who are all willing to move to Charlotte then. The only thing that would make the season watchable for me would be for Bentley to come and stir things up.
